Orchestra of Opera North head south

The esteemed international conductor Bramwell Tovey can usually be found jetting around North America from his home in Vancouver, and occasionally heading to Europe to perform with many of the world's great orchestras. His next trip is in March, when he’ll head up the Orchestra of Opera North at the Royal Albert Hall for Classic FM Live.
